Raised asparagus bed

Posted: 20/04/2012 at 22:44

Hi Gerrya, would be interested to know how you control weeds in your asparagus beds, I have just planted 3 different types on my 1st allotment. Many years ago I knew a chap who grew it for a living and he used to cover it with table salt to kill weeds.( It's a long story how I know this but it's all to do with Ostriches ) I don't mind weeding and that's probably how I'll cope with it.

The Blessing of a new Allotment

Hi Dean & Sandra2. I got my 1st allotment in January, I've had so much fun don't know what I did with my time before. It was knee high in weeds and worst wicks but i'm getting there. Also got the shed up, and a water collecting system.Looking forward to doing so many things this summer, got some plants in and it looks good, but more than anything it has got me into talking to my fellow gardeners, and that's really good. Open to all advice you can give. I got my plot for £10 per year with deposit for key is that good ? I have no idea the cost of such things
